Can the ovitos.exe use the parallel computing?
« on: May 24, 2018, 08:16:30 PM »
Hi every one,

I want to elevate the calculation speed, so the ovitos.exe can use the parallel computing?
Thank you!

Dear Shaui,

OVITO and ovitos both automatically use all available processor cores for certain operations. However, this only applies to a subset of the analysis modifiers and to the rendering of images using the software-based engines. For the other modifiers and file I/O, parallelisation is not implemented, either because it would bring no benefit or because it would be too complicated to develop an efficient parallel algorithm.
